REGISTRATION: The league is $100 per student (family discounts are available). This includes a reversible jersey, Upward t-shirt, season ending prize, and more! There are optional uniform shorts available for $15. Payment is required upon registration to confirm your spot.
EVALUATION NIGHTS: These nights allow us to confirm registration, uniform size, and complete a basketball skills assessment. Attendance is required for registration to be complete. This is not a tryout. If on the waiting list, you do not need to attend an evaluation unless a spot becomes available for your child. As of now the dates for evaluation nights are as follows:
K-2nd Graders - Monday, October 24 (Between 6 PM and 8 PM)
3rd-4th Graders - Tuesday, October 25 (Between 6 PM and 8 PM)
5th-6th Graders - Wednesday, October 26 (Between 6 PM and 7 PM)
PRACTICES: Upward practices are on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday nights. This season there will be four practice weeks (weeks of: January 9, 16 & 23, February 27) Each team has one practice per week, one hour in length. Your practice night and time will be assigned once teams are finalized (December). When you register you are allowed to take one of those three nights out of the equation, but you are required to keep two options available. Due to league size, we cannot take any special requests for a specific night.
GAMES: Games this season will all take place on Saturdays. Each team has one game per weekend. Your game schedule will be handed out at your first practice. Game times are not finalized, but in general they will run in age order, starting with Kindergarten 9:30 AM and ending with 5th/6th boys (possibly around 3:30-5:30 PM). Some teams will take turns having the 8:30 AM time slot as well.
INTRO TO UPWARD: Upward is a national sports program that partners with churches to provide a quality sports league for kids, while teaching kids about faith and true sportsmanship. Players sign up as individuals and are placed on teams. Every effort is made for equal competition between teams. To increase team success, younger players shoot on lowered hoops with smaller basketballs. To reduce unneeded pressure, no league standings are kept Kindergarten through 6th Grade.
